This is Notting Hill Police Station, which serves the communities of Notting Hill, North Kensington and Ladbroke Grove. THINK have just heard that there are possible plans to close it.
THINK are appalled to learn this and we will be attending the meeting about this on Tuesday August 15th between 1 and 2pm at St Johns Church, Lansdowne Crescent, W11.
We believe that the local Police do an outstanding job protecting our community and they deserve our support.
Regular readers of this blog will note how many amenities are disappearing from our local area and that we as residents will campaign to protect them.
As we have pointed out before, since Grenfell, our community is traumatised, fraught and volatile – we need a good local Police presence to keep order in our community.
There is talk behind this of a move towards “reporting crimes online” instead. Well THINK will point out that this is difficult for many of the poorest and most vulnerable in our community and also that many from Grenfell Tower and also neighbouring blocks that had to be evicted now do not have access to a computer.
We urge all the local political parties and campaign groups to stand together and tell Theresa May and Sadiq Khan that this should not go ahead. Most residents of North Kensington, Ladbroke Grove and Notting Hill need a local Police station, not more so-called “luxury flats”
